to be pa part of the process. it's up to us to make sure that we're proud of our process to include them. >> thank you, maureen. and ill think that is the challenge that the president gave today. i think that's the challenge. the president said he's going to target 20 cities. but we are, where ever we are, must become part of the solution or are we a part of the problem? we need people as maureen forte has said, from the bottom up that where the laws are there, where other things are there, that is fine. but we need to all be part of change in the mentality, change in the thoughts, changing the dreams. of young people to understand gun violence and destruction is not something they have to live with. they can be something no matter what their background. no matter what their circumstance. we all have to put our shoulder to the wheel. there's been 1833 people killed since newtown. we all have to be committed, not just look to the white house. he's got to start in your house and my house. thanks for watching. i'm a.m. sharpton. have a great weekend. "hardball" starts right now. >>> cruisin
carthyism and this weird unconnectedness attacking chuck hagel, for example, because no one will give us info or anyone info about the benghazi situation even though hagel wasn't even in the government when benghazi happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks the worse these characters inhofe, cruz, mccain and lindsey graham are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard hating right of republicans these days of every stripe even boehner's scared to death of looking like he might like something barack obama had so say. to do that is to risk political death in these days. let's go at it. our guests are joy reid of the grio and michael steele, former chafer of the republican national committee. both are msnbc analysts and good ones. let's take a look at this. is this delay on the hagel vote about playing for time hoping new information comes out about them? "the new york times" reports
was an enlisted soldier and rose to sergeant. a noncommissioned officer with the infantry, a grunt as they used to say in vietnam. this is navy pilot john mccain with his skraud ron in 1965 before he was captured. hagel made reference to the vantage point an enlisted man has in war. >> i saw it from the bottom. i saw what happens. i saw the consequences and the suffering and the horror of war. so i did question a surge. i always ask the question, is this going to be worth the sacrifice, because there will be sacrifice. in the surge case in iraq, we lost almost 1,200 dead americans during that surge. and thousands of wounded. now, was it required? was it necessary? senator mccain has his own opinion on that shared by others. i'm not sure. i'm not that certain that it was required. >> you know, the horror of vietnam where i wasn't, i always point that out, the guys who were, into the jungle, fighting an enemy you couldn't see. there were no p.o.w.s in the jingle wars. they didn't take prisoners. you know, what we did with ours, we turned ours over for god knows what kind of treatment. that was a
forward. so it's a tool -- >> what do they still want to know about benghazi that can be used as a reason for this decision to hold up this confirmation? what do they still want to know? >> they want to know the name of the person who changed the talking points that were circulated and included the description of the video and a spontaneous demonstration when they've now learned through testimony that the secretary defense and the joint chiefs chair both knew almost instantly that it was terrorism. they want to get to the bottom of this. they say that while many in the media, while many in the public think this issue is over and done with, that the families want to know and that they need to have more information so that conduct of any administration will be aware of the power of oversight from the senate. and they think that will change how people react and decisions they will make. that's the argument they laid out. they said it is not personal, but it is a tool to get information. they believe it was successful in getting the hearing and the letter they wanted. >> thank you, kelly o'do
a political scandal they can use all the way through until the next presidential election. >> let's face it, they're going to turn on hillary the main she makes a move. >> absolutely. they're waiting. >> only last as long as obama's run. >> that's right. jo let's take a look at the confirmation vote. chuck hagel's been confirmed by 58-41. so he got some republican votes there. >> it's interesting. john bolten when he was up for under secretary of state, he also had 41 no votes against him. so they're tied. so those that were the bolden crowd can feel like they got a tie with chuck hagel. >> injure attempt at symmetry disturbs me. i think no one is in the same league as bolten. why do they keep bringing up benghazi. what's the bee in the bonnet? >> i think there's a couple things. for them there's the earnest side if you want to give john mccain and the others the benefit of the kout, they're national heroes and they think it's markers for things like the iraq surge. if you're not in the right place on that, you're not a true national hero stewarding the interests of the country in the right

the asteroid meeting, i'm excited about the floating sun lasers, thank you for joining us, you get the last word. >> thank you. "the ed show" is up next. >>> cruising for a bruising. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. as butch cassidy once asked, who are these guys? what a ratty bunch. they spend their days holed up in the senate taking pot shots at the president trying to bring down his defense chief. nasty as hell, they have nothing good to say for the country, only nasty words to spew about the people running it or hoping to. john mccain, who served the country so admirably, has become an angry fellow from dawn until dusk taking an occasional break to remember who he is and saying enough of this when his new allies get out of hand. when ted cruz starts attacking the loyalty to america of one of mccain's fellow vietnam vets, a combat vet at that. the viciousness is something we haven't seen before because of the combination of mccarthyism and this weird unconnectedness, attacking chuck hagel, for example, because
